Details to Notice: Cozy Living Room Layout

While my first instinct is usually to place furniture around the perimeter of the room and float a coffee table or ottoman in the middle, I’m smitten with this cozy living room layout designed by Meredith Ellis. This is a perfect way to set up a formal living room or study that often goes unused. Keep reading for more details to notice. . .

  • A floating table in the center of the room serves so many functions. Makes a beautiful focal point when styled but can be used as a game table, workspace or even overflow dining if you pull in extra chairs.
  • A skirted table lets you hide extra storage underneath. It’s also a beautiful opportunity to add a bold pattern prominently in the room.
  • But, you could always leave off the skirt and use stacks of books and a garden stool (or two) underneath.
  • The table acts as a divider for the two seating areas. Love the idea of having a more formal sofa and chairs on one side and a cozy reading spot on the other.

!function(d,s,id){
var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;
if(!d.getElementById(id)) {
e = d.createElement(s);
e.id = id;
e.src = p + ‘://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js’;
d.body.appendChild(e);
}
if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {
window.__stp.init();
}
}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);
